Marli Miller to speak at special Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter meeting

WENATCHEE - Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 29 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee.
The Wenatchee Valley Erratics presents a holiday extra. Marli Miller, Dept. of Earth Sciences, University of Oregon, will talk about her just published rewrite of "Roadside Geology of Washington," the classic road-trip geology guide. In “Assembling the Northwest: A Roadside View of Oregon and Washington Geology.” Marli will outline the region's geology using familiar and accessible localities. Then with slides, she will describe terrane accretion (landmasses drifting and accumulating onto the continental coasts), the assembly of Washington and Oregon's underlying "basement” rocks, and end with some events that have since shaped the area’s geology.
The program is free and open to the public. Copies of "Roadside Geology of Washington" will be available in the Museum shop.
